Overview:

This podcast retells the legend of La Befana, a famous gift-giver from Italy. We "flew" to Italy via Google Earth and learned about the country of Italy as well.  After studying about La Befana, children illustrated pictures to retell her story. We also made mini English muffin pizzas to celebrate Italy and their gift giver, La Befana!
